    Excel's drag and fill function, help.

    I have this little problem here:
    I have, in a column (in the first six boxes vertically)
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D9
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D15
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D21
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D27
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D33
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D39

    When I use the drag and fill function, I drag it and the listing would become:
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D9
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D15
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D21
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D27
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D33
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D39
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D15
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D21
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D27
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D33
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D39
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D45

    And to make things even annoying, I tried using the first two:
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D9
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D15

    and it ended up as
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D9
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D15
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D11
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D17
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D13
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D19
    ....


    Is there a way for me to end it up as a multiple of six? I mean what I really want is
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D9
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D15
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D21
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D27
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D33
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D39
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D45
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D51
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D57
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D63
    ='STAGE CALCULATIONS'!D69
    .... which I can't understand why it won't happen. Help anyone?

    This works, in A1
    =INDIRECT("'STAGE CALCULATIONS'!"&"D"&(ROW()-1)*6+9)
    and copy down the column

    Ensure you describe your problem clearly, I have little time available to solve these problems and do not appreciate numerous changes to them.
